Jobs and Sick Benefit Debated by Party Leaders
Unemployment and sickness benefit were two of the topics debated in Sunday evening's latest televised political leaders debate.
Even though the general election is not until the Autumn, the seven party leaders have been busy presenting their views to the electorate. Sweden's centre-right coalition is made up of four parties, with the largest, the Conservative Moderates, led by prime minister Fredrik Reinfeldt.
Reinfeldt defended his government's record on unemployment against charges from the opposition block, led by Social Democrat leader Mona Sahlin, that they hadn't done enough to create new jobs.
